You need to have a location in Ireland to move your research along. Have you exhausted all possible records in Australia? For her parents (if they emigrated with her) and for her siblings (ditto)?

Without that geographical point of reference, you're going to be limited to hit and miss research, and just hope one day they'll crop up in a database. The only all-Ireland database that could help you at the moment is http://www.brsgenealogy.com (I've had a quick look but there's nothing that meets your Julia's date of birth... keep revisiting as new records are being added regularly).

For some ideas on tracking Irish ancestors of unknown townland or county, this website has some helpful ideas: http://www.irish-genealogy-toolkit.com/Irish-ancestry.html.

Good luck

Siobhan

Hi

Having looked at the Behan surname on the ancestry website, it is a pretty uncommon surname with only 21 people in England in 1851. Many Behan's came from Kildare and Limerick.

It can be hard finding Irish ancestors as a lot of records were destroyed but if you know her parents, then this can help in searching for a baptism in Ireland.

I've just come across your question from some years ago. Julia Behan was my GG grandmother. What if any info are you still after. I have some which I might be able to help you with.

Julia arrived on the Nabob on 21/2/1842.
She was a house servant, catholic, could read and write.
Julia was with her sister, Mary Anne, who was 28 yrs, a house serant, could read and write.
Natives of Dublin, boarded the ship at Liverpool.
Father James, mother Anne.

I have "lost" her after 1869 when Alexander died. She is referred to on his headstone so was alive then. Cannot find any death for her, re marriage.
I have been to the headstone at Rookwood and she has not been added to that. Although a grandchild has, Jessie.

I am from the Milne line. Charles Alexander to Alexander Charles to Gordon Keith.
